The victim shares that the sexual abuse occurred when he was a teenager in the 9th grade, a time when the minor parent’s dubbed him “beyond control” for his marijuana use.

As a result, the victim says his parents placed him under the care of Father Maddock. The victim says that while under his care, he was whipped repeatedly and raped by Maddock.

The victim says he was also sexually abused by Father Louis Brouillard while he attended Father Duenas Memorial School.

Court documents state that the assaults occurred on at least three occasions, with one incident occurring while he was at the school showering.

He is seeking relief in the amount of $5 million.
